    Eh, I can't see worth jack. Even my correction is like -7.5 dia. And I have astigmatism.

    I can't smell things well either.

    My sense of touch is okay, I guess. Never really thought about it before.

    My sense of taste is okay, but not anything to throw a party about.

    Hearing is probably my best sense, but only when it's really quiet. Then I can hear a pin drop. I have super-duper problems hearing when there is a lot of background noise (e.g.: party, club, etc.) Then it's like I'm deaf.

    All in all, I'm really not in touch with my senses, I don't think. Maybe that's why I'm an N - as a coping mechanism? I might be talking out my ass, but it's just a random thought that popped into my head.

    Touch, followed by hearing. Hearing probably used to be #1, but over 20 years of blasting my music loud has reduced that one a little.

    My main reason for this thread: I have good Sight memory. If I see a word or a name once, I'll probably remember from there on out exactly how to spell it. Meanwhile, I have horrible Hearing memory. If I'm listening to someone talk and I'm not in closely-engaged conversation, I'm going to miss all the details, and almost always start drifting off. When I picture what that person is saying as written words, I automatically catch more of the content. Obviously, it helps the most when I write it down, so I can directly look at it. (I have college lectures in mind, specifically.)
    Edit: I just remembered, I can keep a lot of details with me if I'm listening to someone intently--usually a good friend. But in everyday observation, it doesn't stick with me.

    Does any of this sound familiar to you? Maybe it's the same for you, but with Hearing instead of Sight?
    Taste isn't often experienced without smell. You can only taste 5, debate on 6, things. The rest of the flavor is down to smell. So it is unlikely that a person would have a really good sense of taste without smell. As being able to detect the flavor of something incorporates both.

    Balance would have been a good one, or maybe awareness of pain.

    My sense of smell, I'm no bloodhound but I get more out of my sense of smell, or at least can remember times in which it triggered a wave of longing and rememberence just by smelling a particular smell.

    I'm also the one on the bus holding a scarf over her nose because some passenger has just farted and I feel over powered yet everyone else is still breathing like nothing happened.

    Good point. I probably should have combined smell and taste.
